Children's experiences during their early years create the foundations of who they become. As they mature into young people, their development is shaped by their environment, education and relationships. This course equips you for a career where you can have a positive impact on children and young people at the most important stages of their lives. Working with children and young people is also about supporting them through the multitude of transitions they make towards adulthood. We investigate the distinctive but everyday situations that children andyoung people experience in different aspects of their lives such as education, leisure, work and families and the potential impact they can have on the child andyoung person's potential outcomes.
